  • Bob is a volunteer who answered all our questions And gave us a detailed history of Fort Verde. Great little gift shop! get your AZ state pass there . Sheila is the ranger there. So friendly and helpful to us. Don’t miss this park if you are in the area. A true gem. Dress up in period clothing /get pix taken. Recorded sound of revelry goes off every hour or so....adds to the real feel of the place. Original buildings still on site. Great exhibits packed with local history, artifacts etc . Found out the Congressional Medal of Honor was awarded to many Indian scouts in the late 1800’s. Much more history and lots of upcoming events. Don’t miss it!
  • The Rangers here beam with not just friendly face & warm greetings but historical knowledge, pride, humor & make the whole experience amazing. Cleanest restrooms I've ever seen at any state park. Amazing preservation of a Indian Wars period fort!
  • Nice historical site with something new to learn. Little area but lots to learn. Next weekend April 7 thru 8 has an event that people should see. Recommend coming next weekend to see The History of the Soldier.
  • This is a tiny museum with big dreams. The exhibits are small but packed with information. So if you only have a short amount of time in Camp Verde, this is a great place to go see. It's a wonderful resource to understand the big picture of habitation in historic sites of the Verde Valley from prehistoric times to now. There are top-notch artifacts in the collection, and the staff and volunteers at the center are a wealth of information. There's good restaurants across the street, too. Definitely a great thing to hit up on the way to Montezuma's Castle. There's even a kids' section! The center is currently in plans to expand in another location and create upgrades at different archaeological sites that currently have none, and to create trails around sites around Camp Verde. If you have a chance, definitely consider checking them out because their heart really is in the right place. It'll take less than an hour if you don't talk to anyone, more than one if you get into a long conversation with someone. Admission is always free, too!
  • Great muesum if you like frontier, old west history. Historic military equipment and firearms. Historic buildings and good interpretative presentation.
